  1. Re: C6 Corvette has far superior handling than any Porsche

    I've heard the 'girl/female' comments myself, from non-P car people at least. A bit odd to hear it from 'the family', but there are insecure people everywhere. I bought the car to have a fun top-down...

    Can you provide some pictures of the wheels? The panjo link/pics don't load. I might be interested. TPMS?

    Re: winter planning

    The replacements are different than the originals, with a longer bolt and more/thicker plastic than the factory fit ones. I replaced mine due to time, ~11 years vs. super high mileage (58k).

    Boxster S Re: Seepage on a 2009 porsche boxter

    Good grief, these aren't AMC 4.0 Jeep engines.... Even that didn't leak, or "seep" once I replaced the offending gaskets. Please never take your or anyone else's car there.

    Re: winter planning

    I bought the Beru packs on Ebay for mine, from an authorized seller for a bit over 200, if I recall. They are working fine.

    Re: Price wheel alignment 2014 CS

    Shouldn't have to ask for anything specific, other than a touch of negative camber on the front, and a bit more on the rear (all within the specs they can pull up).
  7. Re: 2013 991.1 Carrera PDK - Last of the naturally-aspirated Carreras!

    Get that car in the sunlight to show off that unique color!!
    Price/location?
    Mileage?
    Pics of second wheel set?

    Re: Red 987 in Kemah TX

    Good grief... Couldn't park and curbed it.... Regardless of the brand/car, this person should not be on the road if that's how they leave the car parked.

    Re: Din unit RMS required for 2006 CS w/ Bose?

    I'm running 4v, and it works fine. Can't attest to 2v, but if I recall correctly, the aftermarket harnesses like 4v.

    Re: question about dash radio info, et alia.

    Moot point, as of now, for me. Maybe I never looked into it through the info screen. I'm really happy with the AVIC-8400 I picked up through Crutchfield. Got it on sale/clearance for I think $750ish....

    Re: Is it the right car?

    Make sure you do a PPI, like others have said. Also, check the carfax/autocheck. They won't catch everything, but if it looks like the car went in for regular services, it SHOULD be OK. Make sure to...

    Sticky: Re: What did you do to your 987 today?

    Sounds like the starter solenoid to me. I've had that happen on a few cars over the years. Can't really do the 'ol hammer trick on these cars like you can on an old pickup. In regards to towing, no...

    Re: question about dash radio info, et alia.

    I wasn't aware the 987.1 had any dash info. My '08 doesn't, with the CDR24 (no changer) at least. I recently replaced that headunit with a Pioneer NEX unit, and a MOST adapter...

    I didn't like how far out the tips stuck out from the bumper on my car, so I contacted Soul. They didn't hesitate to ship out custom built shorter ones, at no cost to me. Solid customer service right...

    I'll second the repeater trick. It works great, and was easy to set up with my new Chamberlain opener.

    Re: Boxster convertible top care..

    I've had good luck with the 303 cleaner and protectant. I use it on both the Boxster as well as the Bestop 'Sunrider' (sunroof) I have on my Jeep. Re-apply once a year for both.

    Re: Emergency Run 987.2

    The OEM pricing on batteries are comical, regardless of brand. Picked up an H7 AGM from Advance last year for ~$160 after a 20 or 25% email coupon.
  18. Re: 987 Upgraded SHIFTER CABLE ENDS - Remove the Rubber

    I installed these about 5 months ago, on a ~57k Boxster S. Most noticeable for me was the increased precision of gear engagement. No longer am I concerned with whether the gear, usually 3rd, has...

    Re: ‘06 Boxster with Bose - CDR24 - ILX-107

    Not directly related, but I installed a Pioneer NEX unit and Axxess interface last week, and the sound volume is perfectly adequate. Do you have the Bose system with the MOST fiber connections?

    Re: Transmission Mount Upgrade for the 987

    Yep, quite easy actually, with an impact. Take off the undertray/support bars and then use a jack to support the transaxle.

    I put these on, 100% factory fit. They seem to be working just fine, and do seem to be a bit firmer than stock but not bad.

    +1 for the cig lighter method. I have a 3 amp Battery Tender that I've had on it for a year, no problems at all.
